Duncan water rate increase decided

DUNCAN, Okla._ Duncan residents will see five-dollar increase in their water bills starting in July.

The Duncan City Council voted on the rate increased earlier Tuesday afternoon.

Since 2011, city officials say Duncan has struggled to make its annual payments for the $9.3 million rights to use Waurika Lake for city water.

The lack of money being generated is due to lower outside water sales as a result of the city's stage three restrictions.

In order to make its annual payments, the council decided to impose the five dollar surcharge on water meters.
